Due to excessive noise on source dat, "Space" through "The Weight"
patched from 2 different Cassette Masters provided by Paul Scotton.
Both cassette sources had levels that were heavily over-saturated.

Picasso Moon came into its own via Bruce, when he joined up with Vince. There are some great versions of this song in late '90 and '91 - that little jam-thing they added during the end part of the song really cooks.
Deal is amazing, H>S>F totals about a half-hour, and Terrapin leads into a beautiful jam with Bruce leading us into a terrifying Drums ---
Subject: Picasso Moon vs OMSN
Picasso Moon is cheesy in an entirely different way, at least it is witty and self conscious. I always liked the song but obviously it was played too much.
5/12/91 is a great show
Subject: Set 1
Second, I cannot believe this epic Deal isn't mentioned in the comments! I am not a big fan of this song, was a little bored when it started (the first set, while song selection was great, was a little mellow) and then HOLY MOLY the jam in Deal at the end got super psychedelic and literally transformed that giant impersonal Shoreline Ampitheatre into a time machine.
Give it a listen.
Subject: One of the best first sets post-Mydland.

First of all, Picasso Moon is a kick ass tune. It is classic Bobby. If you don't like it, that's fine, but don't dismiss it. It is just as integral to his repertoire as One More Saturday Night or Hell in a Bucket.
Second, there are many incredible shows during the Vince/Bruce-era. Vince Welnick was a talented keyboardist and vocalist, but he didn't always gel well with the band. His cheesy calliope and fiddle keyboard sounds ruined many 'a jam. Bob Bralove, the band's synth and sound effects tech, also deserves some credit here. Most people don't know this, but Bralove is actually responsible for the godawful Casio keyboard synths that Vince used during the '90s. He mixed and created the sounds. During a song, Bralove, offstage at his control booth, would move his arms like he was playing the instrument he thought should be added to Vince's keys. Welnick would see the signal (for example, he might have made a fiddle-playing motion for this version of El Paso), nod, and Bralove would plug in the sample. Next thing you know, a beautiful Eyes of the World jam would be overpowered by what sounded like a monkey cranking an circus organ grinder or a homeless man playing a Peruvian pan flute. Vince may have used the samples, but Bralove created that shit. See Blair Jackson's Grateful Dead Gear book for more details.
Vince managed to get his tones under control by 1993, and there are over a dozen incredible, top quality shows from that year. Garcia's health began to rapidly decline at the start of the fall '94 tour, and the rest is history, but don't overlook the amazing performances that can be found in 1990 - 1995.
Here are some of my personal favorites:
1993-06-21, 22, 23
1995-05-26 ("best of the last")
